Professor Spinks is depart- ment chairman, and right now, the only faculty member in the department. He calls Drama 1000 a "freak course" because of the wide range of students it has at- tracted everyone at the uni- versit; who has wanted to get directly involved in acting but who, up until now, hasn't had an opportunity to enrol in a dramatic arts course. Ke said he sees the students in Drama 1000 as something of a microcosm through which he will attempt to ascertain some of Uie needs of the university and the community in the field of drama. His main problem right now is making sure the growth of the department moves ahead in the same direction, and at the same pace, as the needs o f his students. "The place must be of use to the students, the university and the he says. He emphasises the word ob- viously very much concerned that his new department pro- vides needed service to every- one who requires it. The beginnings are being pro- vided by the Drama 1000 course and a large room on the east campus that formerly housed the university bookstore. Future courses are outlined, but only in a tentative way. Flexibility and responsiveness to student needs are the key- note of Prof. Spinks' approach. Fundamentally opposed to funnelling students into a pre- set dramatic arts "machine.1' he emphasizes student needs even when talking of possible fu- ture productions. A company may be formed to take productions on tour within the Lethbridge district, if and when there is positive reponse to the idea from the students. The same approach applies lo another of his projects the- atre for children to tour local j schools. Head of the department of Head Start board considers incorporation The Lelhbridge Head Start board is considering legal in- corporation, which would give the group independence in the use of its funds and in decision- making.

Under incorporation, Head Start would be responsible for developing ils own policy, and would have lo present a bud- get to the city as other agencies do. A number of board members felt, however, that as volun- teers they could cope better with tire educational needs of the children, as they were not also saddled with Ihe ad- ministrative duties a corporate service would require. The incorporation motion ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bids. 32B-409J was tabled and will be studied further before the board's Oc- tober meeting.

The object of the order Ls the preservation of lives and re- duction of injury to a minimum when a doctor is not available. To accomplish this, members are trained in first aid and home nursing. The SI. John Ambulance As- sociation has been in Leth- bridge since 1930 but the bri- gade of trained personnel was only organized about eight years ago. Tliis brigade, made up of 24 men and women, each year puts in an astounding number of hours of work at sports events, exhibitions and at any other major function where their presence is requested. Last year the brigade put in J.200 hours of work, witii one volunteer logging more than 400 hours. The association, comprising group of intereslcd citizens, is instrumental in raising all !unds which go lo training courses, uniforms for the bri- gade and medical supplies. Strictly a volunteer humanl- arian concern, St. John Ambu- ance is dependent on alloca- tions for the United Appeal al- most 300 per cent. Previous to this year the tiiy provided an annual grant but a policy change has elim- inated this source of revenue. I[ this year's United Appeal's commitment of is not reached, all agency budgets will have to suffer a cutback including the St. John Ambu- lance. If this happens there is cer- tain to be a curtailment of St. John's services to (he city. Medical supplies alone are excessive, and when events such as minor hockey and base- ball games need Ihe brigade's assistance, often several times a week, the drain on funds for medical supplies dwindles rap- idly. Curtailment of some of St. John's services might first be directed to events such as these. The uniform of the S't. Jolin Ambulance Brigade is familiar to us all at almost all major public functions. By supporting :he United Appeal wo will be able lo keep it there. Candidales for mayor and city council will be put on the spot at a question and answer forum one week before the Oct 13 civic election. The Junior Chamber of Com- merce is sponsoring the forum which will be held at p.m. Oct. 6 in the Yates Memorial Centre. Maurice Landry, chairman oj the forum committee, said the format for the proceedings has been established but only about half of the candidates have been contacted to dale. Beginning at each can- didate will present a platform statement. Because of the num- ber of candidates, {lie time allotted for platform presenta- tion will be restricted to five minutes for each of the two mayoralty hopefuls and Ihree minutes each to Uie 15 nomin- ees for alderman. A panel consisting of four jaycee members will then ask questions of the candidates. A break will follow at which time jaycees will circulate through Ihe audience taking questions lo relay to the can- didalcs.

LESS THAN HAIF NEW PRICE Again Fluoridation vote rejected By RICHARD RURKE Staff Writer The qucsLion of a fluoridation plebiscite resulted in a special meeting of city council today but council's Sept. 20 decision stands no plebiscite will be held in conjunction with the Oct. 13 civic election. The meeting was called to in- form council of developments Thursday concerning interpre- tation of certain sections in the Municipal Act. The sections in question deal with bylaws re- quiring the assent of electors. At the instigation of Herald reporter Jim Maybie, the as- sistant city clerk contacted the department of municipal af- fairs for his interpretation of these sections with reference to the plebiscite issue here. Section 29, (2) (h) of t h e Municipal Act states: The returning officer shall publicize the notice of voting by causing it to be published in an issue of a newspaper circulat- ing within the municipality once a week for two successive weeks, the last of which shall be published not less than 14 clear days prior to voting day. The interpretation of that sec- tion by a representative of the department of municipal affairs was that the two dates of pub- lication should be seven days apart. The city solicitor said this section was unclear but re- ferred to Section 24 (3) in ad- vising council against acting to- day on Ihe bylaw. That section states that the day of voting on a bylaw be "not less than three nor more than five weeks after the first publication of the notice The election is 18 days from today and a first publication has not been run in The Herald; if council had acted Tuesday there would have been suf- ficient lime. The controversy arose after council Monday passed the first reading of a bylaw providing for fluoridalion of the public water. The vote was 6-2 in fa- vor, with Aldermen Vera Fer- guson and Chick Chichesler op- posed. A bylaw providing for an ad- vanced poll and a plebiscite was also passed by a 6-2 mar- gin, with the same aldermen opposed. Action on the issue was ini- tiated by a petition containing about signatures asking that Lethbridge electors be al- lowed lo vote on fluoridating the public water. The city solicitor said Ihe pe- tition was improperly submitt- ed, without witness to the sig- natures and containing the names of persons not regis- tered to vote in Lelhbridge. The city solicitor's opinion was the basis for the opposilon by Aid. Ferguson and Cliiches- ter. They made clear at the meeting today that was their sole reason for opposing (Jie by- law, -nd not the issue of fluori- dation. Aid. Hembroff said that a majority of council passed the first reading of the bylaw be- cause a statement of opinion by supporters of fluoridation had been expressed. He said if a technically-pro- per petition had been submitted, council would have accepted it. The city solicitor said a by- election could be held on the issue but that it would be in violation of Ihe municipal Act to hold it in conjunction with Ihe civic election. Council acknowledged the ex- pense of holding a special elec- tion on fluoridation would be considerably more than holding it in conjunction with Uie civic election. The cost of a by-election would be about a plebi- scite with the civic election would be about CLIFF BLACK, Certified Denial Mechanic BLACK DENTAL LAB Lower Level MEDICAL DENTAL BLDC.
